Merry Widow Libretto Translation


NOTE: this is to an open-source, free, and traditional translation of the musical numbers found in Die Lustige Witwe (the “libretto). It was not created by Opera on the Lake.

Some words in the libretto have been changed by Opera on the Lake (Paris to Saint Paul or Pontevedro to St. Olaf, for example), and you won’t see those reflected in this translation. This is simply a standard issue, free online translation that serves the purpose of allowing you, the reader, to get the gist of the story that is sung in German! 

The DIALOGUE is not included. Why? Because Opera on the Lake has its own unique dialogue in English– no translation needed!
